When I hear the name Neill Blomkamp I immediately think of the film director and screenwriter. He is known for the science fiction films District 9, Elysium and Chappie. So I was intrigued when I found out that the very same Neill is bringing his talents to the video game industry with Off The Grid, a new battle royale game.
If you are like me and you read or hear the words “battle royale” you immediately roll your eyes and move onto the next article, then you would be doing yourself a disservice in this case.
Off the Grid is set within a dystopian future where the cyberpunk styled shooter plans to evolve the genre through strong emphasis on narrative progression. Led by Chief Visionary Officer Neill Blomkamp and Script Writer Richard K. Morgan. In addition, industry veteran Olivier Henriot (Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed) assumes the role of Executive Narrative Director. Ensuring a wealth of top-tier talent to bring the world of Off the Grid to life. This has got to be something worth checking out.
A Battle Royale like no other, 150 players fight each other in PvP skirmishes, as well as PvE storyline missions using the same map inhabited by other players in real time. Players have the freedom to control how the story unfolds, with each decision made directly impacting everyone’s gameplay. In Off The Grid, the lines between hero and villain become blurred as players fight to survive the covert corporate battles of the future.
The game is developed by Gunzilla Games and is set for release at some point in 2023 on PlayStation, Xbox and PC. Make sure you are following Any Button Gaming across the socials so that you do not miss out on further updates on this game and many more.

I am a Content Creator who also Live Streams. I love playing video games, talking about video games and I also write about them as I am an editor for a gaming magazine.
What genre of game do I play? Indie games & story driven games mostly.
Other than that my time is taken up being a Mamma. Yes, I am half Italian and you will find the odd Italian word or phrase being dropped into my streams. Particularly when I become excited 😎
Too many games not enough time!
